Stanton stands out in scrimmage

Whether he is on the main field or a back field, Mike Stanton is makig an impact.

The heralded Marlins prospect had yet another impressive performance on Sunday. This time, it was on Field 2 of the Roger Dean Stadium complex.

The Marlins won, 7-0.

In his third plate appearance, he stepped up with the bases loaded. The Mets were throwing R.A. Dickey, who throws a knuckleball.

On a 2-2 offering, Stanton delivered a two-run single.

“You’ve got to put the ball in play,” Stanton said. “There are no excuses if you don’t put the ball in play, regardless if he is a knuckleball pitcher or he’s throwing 120. You’ve got to.”

Stanton, 20, says he has faced a knuckleball thrower before. It was last year at Double-A.

“You just have got to be patient,” Stanton said when facing a ball that is fluttering at him.

In his final at-bat, he struck out. But overall, it was another strong performance for the right fielder, who is making a case to make the team.

The Marlins are weighing whether Stanton is ready to make the big league leap. Most likely, he will open again in Double-A. But the way he’s performing, it wouldn’t be surprising if he gets called up before the All-Star Break.
